I am building a tank up soon for my cichlids, i want to scape it but with no plants (they will get eaten) but will be using a lot of rock.
What is the best way t protect the glass of the tank from the rocks i will be using?

I've seen people put polystyrene (spel) underneath rocks to help not damage the lower glass plane.

Unipac sell quality replica rock, AquaEssentials stock it. They do Okiishi, Sutishi and Ocean rock, all of them look like REAL rocks :D
